  Not only that, but Justice is aiming too low. Despite MS's loud
  ballyhooing, unbundling Internet Explorer would only be a minor setback,
  particularly if they can continue to give it away free.  Did people see
  what happened to Oracle's stock?  I would credit that to MS SQL Server and
  the NT displacement of Unix, above all.
